Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
The North Woods
By William H. Simpson
From “In Hopi-land and Other Lands”

DO you remember those rare intimacies
Of August twilights, around a pine-knot flame?
And the luring intricacies
Of paths leading to shaded nooks of no name?
Have you memory also        5
Of trout, at the end of a taut line,
Poised for the instant,
Like a swift sword-gleam,
Over a flashing, dashing, rollicking stream?
